BTC/USD Trading Technicals
Technicals from Tradingview.com
Well, we’re finally seeing a bit of life from BTC and its indicators. Today saw the price bounce off of $6000 and steer straight for $6500 which it hit before coming back down a bit. A +2% increase is what would be needed to get back into the $7,000 range but we’ll need to see if it’s enough.
Still, indicators are starting to shift from a STRONG sell theme all of last week into some neutral reads today. Good news for people LONG on BTC. IF the neutrals can see some buy ranges over the next few days, we may see that $7,000 mark by next weekend.
